3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are far from core to Hiram College. The focus is on academics with sports and the like reserved mostly for enjoyment. As such, sports like football, baseball etc, are apaid attention to by few outside of those friends with the players on the team.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Well, the sports teams have hardly won anything but that doesn't mean the people who play them aren't passionate about the sports. I'm personally not interested in them.

College Freshman

Athletics: I work a lot. So I don't go to many events

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There's a place for everyone.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: The gym is nice, intramural basketball was so much fun, but it was the only intramural sport that people really participated in. The gym closes at 9 and the sports teams often take up most of it. The pool is rarely open to free swim and no one really ever gets pick-up games at the basketball courts.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The athletic spirit at Hiram is prominent throughout the year, but the most popular sport by far is football. Many students play on the football team—but don't expect that by being on the team you will be on your way to "going pro." Those who play football—or any sport at Hiram—do so to be able to pursue a hobby while at school. That being said, sports are greatly supported at Hiram. Homecoming football especially is a huge event. Other popular sporting events are the basketball and soccer games. The College itself directs a lot of support to the sports teams through scholarships and facility renovations. The Coleman Center includes beautiful gyms, workout rooms, and a dance studio, which are open to the entire campus.

Hiram's intramurals are not especially popular, but many students participate in coed volleyball and flag football as well as seasonal dodgeball tournaments. There are also a lot of club sports such as soccer and a fitness club that invites students to participate in daily activities like yoga and ultimate Frisbee. Ultimately, Hiram is not traditionally a winning school. The spirit is one of lackadaisical recreation rather than competitiveness. But all students are able to get involved in some aspect of athletics at Hiram, which helps to unite the community.
